At GF, sustainability and innovation are important pillars of the Strategy 2025. The recently published GF Sustainability Report 2020 shows that GF is making progress. Last year, the three GF divisions generated 58% (2019: 54%) of their sales with products and solutions that have social or environmental benefits. GF’s goal is to increase this number to over 70% within the next five years. That is ambitious, but achievable.
In the report, we highlight GF's sustainability efforts and successes, such as the decrease in energy consumption and accident rate.
The three success stories
- The valve against global water losses (GF Piping Systems)
- GF’s lightweight solution for lower CO2 emissions (GF Casting Solutions)
- A switch to eco-friendly technology in China (GF Machining Solutions)
demonstrate how GF provides superior value to its customers.
Specific examples and additional information on sustainability topics – such as an overview of how GF is contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals – are presented in the Georg Fischer – Sustainability Report 2020.
